selections are slightly altered, modified, and/or mixed with other
selections. Many tracks are voiced over. My intent is to compose in
the spirit of my inspirations: the diverse variety of terrestrial
and Internet radio programming I grew up listening to and continue
to consume (more "podcasts" these days, thank heavens).
There are certain disc-jockey and pre-produced radio "treatments"
we, as a society, have grown accustomed to hearing. These include
cross-fades, fade-ins, fade-outs, auto-ducks (as Audacity and I call
them), voice-overs, stingers and bumpers that may bleed slightly
into primary content, etc. These minor manipulations (and major
manipulations too, for my money) do very little to detract from the
significance of the content they effect. Personally, my mind has
only been pried farther open upon exposure to this flavor of signal
transmission artistry. I intend to help to push some corner of that
envelope. The last thing I intend to do is obscure the authorship of
the skilled industrialists whose work I feature, or infringe upon
their due credit. If you need details on any of these modifications,
feel free to ask me at email@example.com.
